750mL bottle poured into taster - 2011 vintage
Pours a slightly hazed red-amber color with a froth of fizzy beige head bubbling up on top. Leaves some sticky spots of lacing on the glass with some cloudy retention.
Pleasant scents of tart cherry skin, oak barrel and funky sourness. Fits the style well, balancing hints of sour, funk and fruit.
Nice round tartness up front with funky cherry notes. Oak and slight vinegar acidity with more dark fruit and a soft sweetness. The profile is definitely sour, but milder than I originally expected. Long, lingering finish with dry sourness.
Medium body, well carbonated, bubbly and dry on the tongue. Excellent American take on the style - nice balance, fruit and milder sourness.

Pours hazy reddish brown, with thin off white head. Smell is mostly lemon and cherry. Smell is a little underwhelming for me. Taste is fantastic: very tart and crisp. Lemon / lime, green apples, oak. Not really getting the cherries that everyone else claims. Feel is astringent, tart, dry, light and crisp. Lively carbonation.
Overall, terrific. Supremely drinkable, refreshing and tons of tartness. Along with La Folie, this is one of my favorite all time Sours.

A - Pours a rich amber brown with a luxuriously creamy head. Not much lacing.
S - Cranberry, oak, lemon peel, faint vinegar and leather. Some barnyard funk.
T - WOW. Just really creamy and rich at first, then bam -- it's on -- with tart, tangy cranberries and cherry. Lemon and lime zest intermingle with brown sugar and vanilla. Sour apples bring up the rear.
M - Absurdly soft and creamy considering how puckeringly tart this beer is. Nice long finish with an endless parade if flavors unfolding.
O - Impressive on all fronts. A truly special beer.
